How to Play Cricket : How to Bowl a Googly in Cricket


Hi this is Ash on behalf of Expert Village.
In this clip I’m going to tell you how to bowl a googly. A googly is another effective
tool used by a spin bowler. This ball is generally bowled by a leg spinner and is the one which
is used generally to be fool the batsman. Let me tell you how to hold this ball. You
would generally keep your fingers like this. This helps in spinning the ball. Or rather,
I would say, it’s more like a reverse spin. It gives the look of having a leg spinner
bowling a leg spin, but the ball, after being bowled, straightens out to the batsman, or
may go the other way as well. Let’s see how this one looks like when we bowl it. So once
this action is done like this, it’s a proper leg spinner action, and we just want to take
your arms slightly more towards like this and once this ball is delivered, now the expectancy
which a batsman has that the ball, after landing would go towards this side, it does not happen.
The ball straightens up and surprises the batsman by coming like this. So it’s a straight
delivery, but rather than actually going here, it might also have a slight turn here towards
the leg inside the batsman. Let’s see how this is in real time. This was a typical googly.

    does anyon know a good video that will help or anything?

  5. expert village, a million different ways to help you learn it wrong

  6. i wanna spit at this video..

  7. HAHA! Thats actually not how you grip for a start, you grip all Legspin balls except the slider and the flipper the same way, the only difference is the wrist action and pivot.

  8. International cricketers use a 4 piece ball not 2 piece and domestic cricketers also use a 4 piece. Grassroots cricketers use the 2 piece ball not a fucking tennis ball. Yeah, Ash on behalf of expert village, what a legend.

  9. Keep your wrist facing the ground at point of delivery, takes a bit of practice. I use the opposite approach when bowling pace and have my wrist facing the sky at the point of delivery.

  10. googly does not staraightenes up it turns the otherside the holding of ball is not correct

  11. This guys desn't know to bowl googly

  12. Maybe you should learn about the language of coming from India or from the Middle-East, jerk. He's not english so 'Expert' wouldntsound the same, you need to clean up on your Geography.

  18. that was crap googly! lol

  19. well…i can spin better than u taught in a better way! :S

  20. he says googly so funny

  21. I have seen this bowled by an expert in England and for us "Yanks" it looks like a low knuckle ball or a palm ball that breaks down and away or up and in (depending on which hand the bowler uses) after the bounce. Its awesome when done right.

  22. True that! I am not a big fan of Cricket. I only watch it (and still learning) because of my girlfriend. She is nutz over it! Still, If I can read this bowler and translate this motion into another game format…..Youre right. He really sucks!

  23. I seen that guy terry jenner. He is awesome!!

  24. Wow the batsman doesnt even know how to bat and this 'Ash' sucks and doesnt know how to bowl BTW Terry Jenner is awesome

  25. Absolute rubbish, its not in the grip at at you goofball

  26. your knuckles has to face the batsman and the release is from behind your spinning finger

  27. This guy is a idiot..first of all, he is showing in on a garden grass field where the ball normallt gets uneven turn and bounce which is different from a pitch and second when he shows it in a real time, he focus the camera on batsman rather than him bowling..how we can believe that he bowl a googly..he must have bowled a straight over arm delivery and said it is a googly…worst video ever..i dont know how can these people get a desire to upload a coaching video.

  28. thats not how to bowl a googly…it shows what a googly does!

  29. Hi check out this video how to bowl a googly, well different bowlers has different ways to bowl googly, well this is one way, very soon I am going to show another type of googly.

  30. huh? i dont get what u r trying to say in the first place. and then i can bowl better than u.
    all ur methods are wrong

  31. hi its ash from expert village and i have a dick up my ass so i cant bowl

  32. Wtf?! It won't even spin correctly, it's on the grass… Get a pitch. Get Abdul Qadir or Tendulkar, they would teach better.

  33. this is one of the most depressing videos i've seen…learn the bloody game first. you're pathetic. i can't imagine budding cricketers wanting to learn about the great sport looking at this crap

    have u contemplated suicide
    ?

  34. look at the string coming out of his pocket

  35. lol, that last bit of the video made me laugh.

  36. @philchelt Hey man he teach us k .Do you come and teach us???????so plz dont critisise him

  37. ash thinks his a pro at cricket by making all these vids but theyre stupid vids

  38. I don't know why I even bother watching expert village. All of their videos suck as tutorials!

  39. @ajrocking768 ya man these assholes dont know how to appreciate one person if one man critisises every1 will follow that

  40. such an chuta ka patha

  41. yeah man

    he has a wrong grip

  42. this is not googly this is poorgly

  43. Village………………

  44. where did they get this idiot?

  45. hold my balls next

  46. its funny.. we just saw u bowl, but never clear how exactly u do it.. u didnt have to bowl, just showing the spinning movements of ur hand would have been enough

  47. Your leg spin video's grip was completely wrong!! But i did like the way the guy in black played the straight drive.

  48. @129Mayur hes indian

  49. learn how to hold the ball first Mr. SO CALLED expertvillage!!

  50. BITCH U SHOULD DO THIS

  51. LOL its not a googly its a straight ball wat u balled a googly is meant to turn the the opposite direction of off spin

  52. best part. 0.08, guy in the background yawning like a boss

  53. wrong way to old the ball

  54. Rubbish videos. That's not a googly, also an incorrect grip. All videos of this asshole should be deleted, Because if someone wants to learn leg spin bowling and finds these rubbish videos, he might be misguided.

  55. Welcome to Ash's home videos

  56. I too find a quiet spot in the park to play cricket. Don't you have any nets in India?

  57. Shit we lost It didn't work!

  58. THIS GUY ASH IS FULL OF CRAP………….GET HIM OUTTA HERE.

  59. MAKING PEOPLE STUPID…….BLOODY INDIAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  60. First of all this idiot probably changed his name to ash from something else. It's a typical Indian thing when they move to a American or uk. He probably doesn't know how to bowl the wrong on. That's why the video doesn't show him actually bowling
